Medal for John

A local councillor has received his British Empire Medal from Shropshire’s Lord Lieutenant Mrs Anna Turner JP. John Minor, 77, who served as a borough councillor in Telford for 36 years was awarded the BEM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List last year.

Council leader Councillor Shaun Davies said, “I would like to congratulate John who has been an exemplary public servant for more than three decades. This Honour is richly deserved for all the selfless hard work John has carried out on behalf of our residents and community.”

John said, “I am very humbled to receive this Honour. I’ve only ever strived to do my best for my constituents and to help shape local, affordable and much needed events for the benefit and enjoyment of the whole community.”
